Learned Behaviors Dog TrainingLearned Behaviors Dog Training celebrates positive reinforcement, force-free, and reward-based training are humane modern approaches to dog training. These techniques do not rely solely on treats, but focuses on other aspects that would be rewarding to the dog.

Force free and positive reinforcement does not mean lack of structural conduct or free rein of the house. Patience, structure, consistency, a little more patience and a lot of love are the key elements to a happy, well balanced and confident dog. Every dog, no matter how well-behaved, needs training, which strengthens the bond between pet and owner. No breed is too big or too difficult to be trained practicing force-free and humane dog training!

Our students include puppies and adult dogs needing manners to reactive or aggressive dogs. What makes us different is our unique approach to preventing future behavioral problems. Addressing challenging cases without the use of force, pain or intimidation is our mission. Learned Behaviors Dog Training works with a wide range of behavioral issues.
